Wolf Hall 'Live'
Debbie Wiseman and the Locrian Ensemble of London conducted by Debbie Wiseman - Capitol Theatre
Program Info: Locrian Ensemble of London Debbie Wiseman, composer, conductor Anton Lesser, narrator
Debbie Wiseman - Wolf Hall
Hilary Mantel’s award-winning novel Wolf Hall was transformed into a riveting six-part drama by the BBC to huge acclaim in 2015.
Accompanying Thomas Cromwell’s machinations and hushed conversations in shadowy palace corners was original music by Debbie Wiseman, performed by members of The Locrian Ensemble of London; the soundtrack CD reached no.1 in the classical charts. Wiseman and the Ensemble perform selections from her acclaimed score, alongside extracts from Wolf Hall and its first sequel Bring Up The Bodies read by Anton Lesser – who played Thomas More in the BBC series.
Wiseman has over 200 film and television soundtracks to her name including Wilde, Wolf Hall and, more recently, Dickensian. Consisting of some of the country’s finest musicians, the Locrian Ensemble is at the very top of its game, delivering stunning performances which range from the blisteringly dramatic to the heart-rendingly mournful. The concert roughly follows the narrative of the television series with Lesser’s intense readings setting the scene for a musical commentary. The most intense part of the concert must surely be the depiction of Anne Boleyn’s execution, as the impassioned readings leave the audience hanging on every word, with music that is gripping and moving in equal parts.
